My name is donna and apart from knitting I do a little bit of everything. I have only made two quilts before, so I consider myself a real beginner.
My first one was a made from a full kit (so no fabric decisions) and I got it professionally machine quilted. The second was a simple pattern using fat quarters and I used polar fleece for the backing. Not the most ideal for a quilt but great for a baby's play mat, which is its intended use.
To do something different I am going to make a quilted oven mitt and coordinating apron for this sew-a-long. The apron has a quilt block on the front for the pocket. Both of these patterns are from Denyse Schmidts book Quilts.
